Aku-Aku came into being in 1968 when Bobby Seto bought nearby Polynesian Village and moved it to this new location with a new name. The front entrance was flanked by two very tall moai that originally were at the Polynesian Village.
The back wall had a mural of Polynesian scenes running its entire length.
Aku-Aku closed in April 2000, and the location is now Jasper White's Summer Shack. The left moai is gone, but the right moai remains, undercover as a bearded fisherman clad in yellow rain gear.
